I have the dreaded saggy glovebox as well. Instead of going through all this hassle, why not just mount a small black magnetic clasp and/or use black velcro to keep it completely shut? It sure doesn't take much force to keep it held open all the way, and I rarely have the glovebox open anyway.

I'll look into this and post my results back in.

It's really not that much of a hassle. If you follow the directions and take your time, it will take you about 30-45 min tops. I'll bet you spend almost as much time figuring out how and where to mount the velcro.

And you end up with a FIXED product on an expensive car instead of Velcro. But it is your car.

Over-engineering at its worst!

Good point. I'm about to add the VAIStech usb/ipod connector and the Prestigious Society NAV/DVD override anyway; will knock all 3 out at once.
